What is sustainability and what does it mean for the future of our planet? What are the grand challenges we must address to ensure that we move to a more sustainable world? Can we maintain our current levels of human activity without destroying the biological systems that sustain life?

In the first of a four-part series of webcasts in partnership with the McGill Sustainability Systems Initiative, two McGill experts will discuss the important work being undertaken to better understand – and reverse – the widespread impact of human activity on the planet through more sustainable environmental, social and economic practices.

With:

Elena Bennett, Professor, Department of Natural Resource Sciences and McGill School of Environment

Kevin Manaugh, Associate Professor, Department of Geography and McGill School of Environment
